    What are Bonds?

    Bonds Image 1

    Bonds are loans that investors offer to borrowers (usually governments, municipalities, or corporations).

    The two parts agree on an end date when the principal (the face value) of these loans needs to be paid, as well as the terms of interest rates.

    The purpose of bonds is for the issuers to raise capital for various purposes: governments and municipalities launch bonds to fund infrastructure, educational or other general-public projects, and corporations to expand their businesses, R&D purposes and other.

    Bonds can be classified by their maturity dates:

    from 1 year to 3 years – short-term

    from 3 to 10 or more years - medium-term

    How to trade bonds: CFDs and regular bonds investing

    Bonds Graphic

    CFDs are a type of financial trading that lets people trade the price movements of various assets, including bonds. The important thing regarding CFDs is that you don’t have to physically own the asset to trade it.

    For example, if you would think a bond will increase in price, you could take a long position and place a BUY order. If you would think prices will go down, you could take a short position and place a SELL order.

    Outside CFDs, you can opt to invest in bonds as a bondholder. Since governments, corporations, or municipalities issue these instruments to finance different projects or to expand their businesses, the value of interest payments you receive depends on many various factors.
